RIDGEFIELD PARK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Bulldog Reporter is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2023 Bulldog PR Awards, which recognize remarkable PR and communications campaigns and impressive individual and agency contributions to the PR industry from the previous year. The Bulldog Awards are the only PR awards program judged exclusively by journalists, offering a unique and industry-specific evaluation process.

“As a long-time Bulldog Awards judge, I have watched the evolution of PR/marketing go from press releases and cold calls to true creative storytelling,” says Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Tom Hallman Jr. “We live in an era where it is vital to adapt—to technology, to the economy, and audience and client expectations. The work in this contest shows remarkable creativity and teamwork, nearly all of it behind the scenes. Thinking, taking risks, and believing in the team is what matters most.”

The Bulldog PR Awards have honored exceptional PR campaigns, individuals, and agencies for over 25 years. Every program, a Grand Prize winner is selected from each group. This year’s distinction goes to:

• “The 9/11 Community’s Campaign to Combat Saudi Arabia’s Sportswashing Tactics” by Winuk Communications, Inc. with 9/11 Justice for Best Campaign of 2022

• Dina Mostovaya, Mindset Consulting for PR Star of 2022

• French/West/Vaughan for Best PR Agency of 2022

To be considered for a Grand Prize, recipients must have entered the same entry in multiple categories and won Gold at least once. With 40 campaign categories, 11 agency categories, and seven individual categories, there was something for everyone.

“This year’s entries were very impressive,” says Christopher Elliott, author, consumer advocate, nationally syndicated columnist, and veteran Bulldog PR Awards judge. “We saw so many excellent examples of PR pros elevating their clients’ messages and using their platforms for good. I think more than anything, they showed the true value of a PR practitioner.”

Richard Carufel, editor at Bulldog Reporter, added, “It’s always inspiring to see so many of these fantastic submissions, and all the interesting strategies PR firms and professionals execute for their companies and clients. The level of creativity seems to get better every year. Seeing all the amazing media placements and other results they earn reinforces my faith in PR and proves that, amid all the tech-y bells and whistles—and, in many cases, because of how PR leverages them—great public relations is more valuable than ever. And it works!”

Congratulations to all the winners of the 2023 Bulldog PR Awards! The full list is available below.
